I was asked to make birthday present box for liqueur but, my terms were to came up with some design. So I wanted to surprise customer with some puzzle. It’s made of firwood/pine pallet wood and small parts – oak. Finish wood oil, letters -pirography. Only one thing keeps this box together – no sides were glued or screwed. See the last photo how to disassemble it. It wasn’t my design – I picked it up from some similar box on Pinterest. Ofcourse I didn’t tell customer the secret yet, let they play a little. I gave them ’’hammer’’ alternative in case they fail.

Nice job, make them work for it. If they don’t figure it out then you get the liquor back.

The puzzle box idea is the best, with your craftsmanship I do not think they will be useing a hammer to solve it.
